[SOLD] Sigma Mini Wide 2.8 28mm manual lens - US Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Sigma Mini Wide 2.8 28mm manual lens - US

Asking Price
$ 25.00

Item Location
Los Angeles, CA, USA

Item Description
This is a manual focus, manual aperture version of the Sigma Mini Wide 28mm 2.8 lens in Pentax bayonet mount.

I have used this lens for indoor video on my K-x where the low light capabilities, wide angle and silent focusing are a great combination.

The lens has clear lens elements with no signs of fungus and the blades are clean and snappy. The focus ring moves smoothly and has a well damped action, the aperture ring feels solid and clicks into place smoothly.

The lens has the following two issues:

The rear element has 5-6 small nicks on one side as if it was placed on the ground without a rear cap. The nicks do not affect the image quality that I can note. These can be seen in the picture below.

If you hold the lens up to your ear and rotate it along its axis you will hear what sounds like bearings moving around. It does not affect the operation of the lens but I have not heard that before in a lens so I wanted to mention it.

This lens would make a good cheap way to start out in manual lenses for your dslr, as on our dslr's the resulting focal range is 42mm.

Note that this one is fully manual, not the A version that is in the review section.
